A little background information...

This film was originally produced in 2008 as a 90-second pencil-only animation experiment. The visual ideas are a combination of post-graduation musings and to fill in areas of character animation I’d not managed to cover during my preceding MA film. The following year I decided to dust it off, extend the story and colour it in properly.

How was the film made?

Pencil-on-paper, digital inking/colouring, composited and edited in After Effects.
